(back cover)

Contractors and subcontractors . . . carpenters . . . plumbers . . . electricians . . . painters . . . and everyone else who works in today's construction industry— If you need to communicate with fellow workers in Spanish, here's the help you've been looking for!

If you work in any of the building trades, and if you need to speak with and understand Spanish-speaking workers, this book is for you! You won't find tedious grammar rules to memorize. Instead, you're given useful sets of terminology, ready-to-use phrases, and the pronunciation of every word. The focus is on everyday words and phrases that apply to the building trades and to the related skills and professions.

Book News Annotation:

Designed for anyone who works in construction and communicates regularly with those who speak only Spanish, this reference provides essential words and phrases in chapters on specific construction situations, such as grading and foundations, structural work, framing, roofing, mechanics in general, and exterior and interior work, as well as emergencies and employment. Two beginning chapters cover basic skills such as pronunciation, greetings, numbers and time, and common verbs, and provide vocabulary for general topics such as health, clothing, the weather, tools and materials, and measurements. Chapters are divided into easy-to understand segments on work words, "one-liners" (specialized groups of words and phrases), grammar, and exercises. There are also segments on Latino traditions, beliefs, and general ways of life. Author information is not given. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

True-to-life bilingual dialogues presented in the book recreate work and work-related situations.
